Welcome to VoX Maris Band official site.
VoX Maris Band resembles the message of unity, love and hope to all souls far away from home. In their songs we find memories, long forgotten emotions creating a nostalgic yet happy feeling, to all who have left their homes for a better life.
The group was started in 2010 by Stefan Cristoltean and Dan Paduraru, as “Cenaclu Vox Maris” promoting young talents and singing Romanian Folk, Country and Dance Music, around Chicago area. In 2006 Adrian Nechiti and Dan Rizo formed a small Rock group, bringing alive Romanian Classic Rock Music into the community around Chicago.

The sentiment for unity, love and hope, made the perfect moment, when both groups decided to come together as one voice “VoX Maris Band”.
